Skylanders is one of those Toys-to-Life games that require you to purchase a bunch of expensive toys in order to unlock content in the game you already paid full price for. I wrote IGN’s wiki guide for two games in the series and calculated that you need to spend a minimum of $254.89 in order to experience everything in Skylanders: Swap Force. Skylanders: SuperChargers has the potential to cost you significantly more, depending on just how much of the game’s content you want to access. A game, I must remind you, that costs $75 to start.
It’s horse poop.
But equine droppings aside, how’s the actual game?
On this week’s show (episode 166) hosts Andrew Eisen and E. Zachary Knight are joined by Danny Ledonne – the creator of Super Columbine Massacre RPG!, about his ten year-old game, the documentary he made about it called “Playing Columbine” and why he currently finds himself banned from the Adams State University (ASU) campus (1:35 is the starting point). They also discuss the latest GamePolitics poll (“Is $5.9 billion to acquire King – developer of Candy Crush – a good move for Activision?” – 59:05). At the end of the show (1:19:53) Andrew and Zachary talk about Nintendo Direct, Super Smash Bros. characters and Xenoblade Chronicles X censorship.
